Program Description

Gracia is a multi-disciplinary residency in the outskirts of Antigua Guatemala offering a platform for creative experiments and space for togetherness. The residency hosts artists and non-artists across all fields to support research, conversation and connection surrounding creative work, process and purpose. The program is focused on your creative practice and all the ways it can manifest. Residents work independently on proposed project or research. Residents are also encouraged to do nothing, to rest, to not work. To read one book slowly. Or go into town everyday and explore. You may design this residency however you wish. We assist with project development and research as much as possible to create a platform of support, conversation, reflection and accessibility. That said, all needs and desires are not always possible to access and the primary work does lie in the hands of resident themselves.
